Once a month, BloomBars hosts "Poetry in Bloom" a poetry writing group hosted by guest teaching artists. Plant the seeds for new "poet-tree" by free-writing using writing prompts, sharing our work, and getting some practice reading aloud. BloomBars is a safe and encouraging space so don’t be shy, if you're interested, everyone is welcome to give it a try! Please bring paper and pen.
April, May and June will be guest-taught by local poet Sarah Lawson, founder and slam master of the Beltway Poetry Slam, which currently hosts the 5th ranked slam team in the world. Other than serving as DC poetry's unofficial hype woman, she can be found teaching writing workshops throughout the city, sharing rough drafts on open mics and attending her favorite 7:30 am activity, Poetry in the Morning at Bloombars. She has served on the board of mothertongue DC, DC's premier women's spoken word group, and was a member of the Jenny McKean Moore Writing Workshop in poetry at the George Washington University.
